Our first Chicago wedding is finally ready for showing, and it was one filled with beautiful venues and a wonderful couple! People like Katie and Ryan really make our photography work shine. From theWit Hotel to the Tiffany Celebration Garden and all the gorgeous Chicago spots they picked out for photos, Katie and Ryan did a great job with laying out their wedding details. We’re excited and proud to showcase these images.
Gretchen & Dale are good friends of ours from Church. Unfortunately we couldn’t photograph their wedding because the timing didn’t work out with us living in Chicago-land and their wedding taking place in Massachusetts. But we came home (Pittsburgh will always be home for us) for the week before the Fourth of July and we were able to set up a Rock the Dress shoot with them. Such a joy.
This was one of the most enjoyable (and longest) weddings we’ve ever shot! We started at 7:00 in the morning and we didn’t finish shooting until 2:00 a.m. after the sun went back down. Oh, and we were in Rome, Italy, which is Michel’s birthplace. The scenery was fantastic, the couple beautiful and all of their friends and family were incredibly hospitable. Cristina is the daughter of good friends of the family, and being with them felt like reconnecting with long-time friends ourselves. We are incredibly excited to bring you these images.
